This listing is for a mid-century modern by Charles Wagner in Moyaone Reserve. The 3 bedroom/2 bath home sits on more than five acres and is being sold “as is” as a “fixer upper.” The price has dropped $50,000 t0 $330K.  Moyaone Reserve, is a heavily wooded community of mid-century modern homes near the Potomac River in the Piscataway National Park’s scenic easement. The homes in the community, just 20 miles south of Capitol Hill, were first built after World War II by architects such as Wagner, who was heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Charles Goodman, who designed one of his earliest homes for clients in the community. If you are searching for a MCM restoration project close to D.C. yet one that feels much further from the city, make sure to look at this one.

All the homes in Moyaone Reserve are on more than five acres.
